Lily Amis

Author Lily Amisabout this book: Definition of Freedom is the follow-up story to Destination: Freedom, an autobiographical novel. The escape from a war-torn home to Europe was only the start of a new set of problems. The sacrifice of giving up everything precious in her young life was only the beginning of a lifelong misery as an adult. Growing up in a country, where Lily felt unwelcome and rejected from minute one was an emotional disaster.

In Definition of Freedom, the follow-up story, Lily openly shares her experiences as a foreigner in Switzerland, where her life was constantly overshadowed by bureaucracy, discrimination, social isolation, bullying and unemployment. During the twenty-seven-year period waiting for her naturalization she experiences set-backs, betrayal and all-too-human disappointment. Despite everything, Lily and her Mom emerge stronger from every defeat and always fighting for their rights!

What readers say:

• "I recommend this book, which is written honestly and with so much passion to bring awareness to all victims of bullying."

• "A moving memoir with many important global topics such as bullying, dealing and fighting depression and much more. "

• "In all the bad Lily and her mom Sima still manage to see the brightness in Life. I specially love the chapter where Lily Amis describes the world from today to her grandparents that both have passed away for many years."

• "So many of us struggle to find the right way in Life. The way Lily Amis describes her way is inspiring and in many ways eye-opening."

• "It takes allot of courage to open-up your heart and soul and bring awareness to topics that most people are ashamed of!"
